The official website for the Uncle From Another World anime has announced that the staff is delaying the series’ 13th episode due to the spread of COVID-19 in China. The anime’s 12th episode will re-air instead on December 29, 2022. The staff will reveal the premiere date of the 13th episode at a later date.
The Uncle From Another World anime premiered worldwide on Netflix, as well as on Japanese television, on July 6, 2022. The anime suffered a two week delay of its fifth episode due to the spread of COVID-19 within the studio. The anime’s production committee then delayed the eighth episode and beyond in September 2022, citing the rapid increases in COVID-19 infections within Atelier Pontdarc and other studios involved in the anime’s production. The anime instead re-aired Episodes 3-6 throughout September 2022. The anime then restarted its airing from the first episode on October 6, 2022.
